Blattner Energy Expands Headquarters
Blattner Energy, Inc., a long-term client of Studio Hive, is a renewable energy general contractor that delivers construction solutions throughout the U.S. and Canada. Studio Hive led the planning and design of the interior workplace for their 52,000-square-foot new headquarters, working in collaboration with base building architect URS and design/builder Knutson Construction. When complete in 2008, this building was the second project certified as LEED® Platinum in the state of Minnesota.
To accommodate Blattner’s continued business growth and evolution, Studio Hive recently led the interiors of a 23,300 SF expansion, completed in April 2016. The expansion augments Blattner’s conference and training center with a technology-rich multipurpose auditorium, increases the size of their employee fitness and locker facilities, adds a fitness studio and remodels existing office space. Like the existing building, the addition promotes sustainable construction and efficient energy use. New features include electric car charging stations and geothermal HVAC system expansion. Blattner continues to power a portion of its campus from wind and solar energy produced on site.
